Rilke Discussion: Monday 25 March

René Rilke’s letters to the young Mr. Kappus are full of a faith in our experience of Nature, which makes of the artist a vessel for its inner logic, for its ways of behaving in which one can discover a depth of joy and a pain of beauty. His advice is to practice a giving-in, rather than an attempt at styling or taming, which would build only artifice and leave the experiencer blind to anything original, anything worth saying.
